Weekday shows (other than around Thanksgiving and the week between Christmas and New Year's Eve) and shows with unpopular narrators tend to have lower crowds. To guarantee yourself a seat, get in line very early or purchase a Candlelight Processional Dinner Package. If you don't get in, note that you can hear the beautiful music just fine in the plaza in front of the American Adventure building.
Disney offers Candlelight Processional Dinner Packages at certain World Showcase restaurants. For a fixed price, guests receive a meal and a ticket for preferred admission to a specific Candlelight Processional show on the day of the meal.
Disney starts filling the theater with dinner package guests, who typically form a line on the Japan side of the theater. Once those guests have been seated, Disney admits people from the normal standby line, which typical forms on the Italy side of the theater.
